    My first call to buy two of these from Discount Tire reveals they need to call Pirelli because they don't have any in N. America! Give me a break! So hey, posting this up, anyone know where two "Y" rated tires like this are at? I'll buy them NOW. I guess IF we find them we also have to buy into their run flat option also. I am good with all of that but hey Pirelli if you list a tire please make them available! I'll post up the results of the search later. If those don't work, we are looking into Michellin, but my problem with them is they don't make a 275/40 for the OEM front size. Any other size don't match the 315 ride height. Anyone have another sticky idea, because I have about $5000 in wheels coming to make this thing a sticky road machine.

    I saw your post on the wheels yesterday. I have not heard from Bismarck, but he told me they were going to cut mine right after yours. FYI I ordered a different finish/color.

    I have the Nitto DR's on my stock set. I am going to keep those for racing. I really don't like the DR for everyday use. So I was trying to save a few bucks for the first time, reuse the Pirelli tires off my stock backs for my new fronts and put the matching 315's on the new 10.5". We shall see what happens. Discount is researching Pirelli today and if they fail, they are going to look at Pilot Super Sports. I see nothing that works up front, but I will let them think about it. They said another guy with about 600hp tried the Nitto Invo. He immediately wanted to trade them in, not the expected traction FYI.

    I may look at the other Nittos, thanks.

    I talked to him yesterday both sets of rears are cut and they were cutting the fronts then polishing and powder coat we should get them next week if all goes well. It's a pain to find tires for this car !

    Yep, now the wheels seems easy now, thanks to your find. If Pirelli can't get the 315's a set of Nittos may have to work. So if I don't want the drag radials on the back, which street set does everyone think will stick the best?

    I've ordered a set of Nitto NT05's and they make a 275/40R20 for the front. And I'm going with the 315/35R20 for the rear. Both tires are listed at 28.62" tall so they should match up well. I hate seeing a rear tire that's shorter than the front.

    Discount Tires Direct is getting both sizes for me and I should have them within a few weeks. I was in no rush as I'm waiting for a set of wheels that are being built. I was told they usually do keep them in stock.

    Confirmed by Discount Tire only....a Pirelli P-Zero 315/35R20 does not exist. "NONE AVAILABLE AND NO ETA GIVEN FOR ANY FUTURE INVENTORY."

    Ok edit..I need to tone it down, I have found a set of W rated on the Internet. Ordered them and we will soon see if they ship. I figured chances are small of sustained speeds over 168 mph.

I told him to leave some fat on mine as I will have a 900+ hp HC one day. Here is a teaser pic :)

    I was just settling in and decided to look at the forum nice more. You are bad! All cleaned up they look better and better. I think mine get the coatings tomorrow. If I get some different pictures I will have to post up. I like the light weight. Should feel it in the front, the weight stays the same out back since it makes up for the big tires, which is good. The car should feel real nice I think. I want to try some cornering. I miss that with the DR's since day three. This car with mile #5 showing with the service tech riding I pulled a 0.91 corner first try around an exit ramp, they did not even make a peep of a noise. Told him I did not need to break-in the darn suspension system, let's see how that works! I want to go for the full G with the wider backs and see if she holds.
